Tips on Tying PMD Sparkle Dun
As Craig points out in the video, selecting the proper deer hair is critical to tying this pattern properly. The short deer hair fiber with black tips that Craig describes comes from the leg of the deer and is commonly known as Comparadun hair. Comparadun hair is solid rather than hollow making it finer and easier to tie in.
